Anyone bought from the Linux Emporium?

Postby DanteA » Thu Jul 22, 2010 12:18 pm

Hey all, just wondering if anyone has bought a computer from the Linux Emporium? I've had a look at their high end desktop and I'm quite tempted, but even though this is purportedly a Linux company, I'd prefer to see if other people can recommend them before I give them the best part of a £1000

Cheers,

-Dante

Linux Emporium

I live in Spain and it is lonely wrt linux - esp if you are an OAP recovering from a stroke.

I decided to try broadband via wifi and bought a wireless router from Linux Emporium. It cost £20 and of course, I had probs.

The MD spent about an hour talking to me until I had comms.

The fault was with my equipment setup, not his gear.

Outstanding Customer Service for a £20 sale!

Highly recomended!

Best

Not bought from them recently, as I haven't needed to. A friend bought a laptop from them last year (on my recommendation) and has been happy with it.

Did you mean to say that? :D

I suspected this user was a potential spammer from the style of their posts. I was waiting for a spam signature link to appear, which it has now done.

Edit: I went to delete the post after writing this but someone beat me to it.
